A Local gaming store, Armored Gopher Games, is preparing for one of its busiest weekends of the year.

On October 2-3, they will be holding an event for the release of the newest Magic: The Gathering card game set: Battle for Zendikar. Reporter Lucas Wright got the scoop from the storeowner and local players.

The event will consist of each player competing head-to-head with other players in his or her pool until a champion has been crowned in a “March Madness” style bracket.

Throughout the night prizes will be awarded through a raffle, and players will also be able to keep the cards that they receive upon entry to the event.

Buy-in is $25 dollars, and the money will cover six packs of 15 cards that the players will use to build their 40 card decks and it will also include a ticket for the raffle.

All of this information and more can be found on the store’s website.
